president biden's task force is likely to make recommendations before the inaugural and he told boston's mayor tom menino that it would be passed by the end of january. is that optimism on his part justified, and are you open to the kind of reforms the president has already talked about like a limit on high-capacity gun magazines and background checks to buyers at gun shows? >> well, first we need to concentrate on joe biden's group and what are they going to recommend? and after they do that, we'll decide what, if anything, is appropriate to do in this area, but the biggest problem we have at the moment is spending and debt. that's going to dominate the congress between now and the end of march. none of these issues, i think, will have the kind of priority that spending and debt are going to have over the next two or three months. >> so you're not going to address this until after you address these three deadlines we talked about at the top of the program? >> yeah, the single biggest issue confronting the country is spending and debt. that's going to dominate the discussion in congres

biden's task force late today decried what it called proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners, honest tax paying, hard working americans. well, the question for america tonight, what does paying taxes and working hard and even being honest have to do with this country's failure to keep fast firing, high capacity guns from the hands of the mentally or emotionally disturbed? because if we can't do that without arousing the call to arms of the nra, then we have to wonder what side this group, the nra, is on. those who want to keep the scariest guns from the scariest people or those who want to make it easy as possible for the scariest people to get the scariest guns? what side are you on, mr. and mrs. america? we begin with gadhafi dan malloy of connecticut. governor, thank you so much. i was so taken with your emotional statements recently, the last 24 hours, and talk about it. what it means to be the governor of a state that saw the newtown horror. >> well, listen, it changes your life. you know, i had to be there on the 14th. actually i had to tell a bunch of parents and adult

makers and the ncra all come together to talk about guns. vice president biden is hosting another day of back to back meetings with so-called stake holders in the firearms debate. the vice president has set off a firestorm in conservative ranks by suggesting that the president might not rely, necessarily, on congress, at least not entirely, to crack down on gun violence in america. >> enter, the executive order. enter the instantaneous backlash. >> so when biden, himself a liberal democrat, says that himself and the president, cabinet, attorney general, all a bunch of leftist democrats are talking about using executive orders, when you say for what, it could only be to take guns away from people. who knew that an executive order could trump a constitutional amendment? >> nope, nope. sorry. no rush. you are very entertaining and i'm sure a lovely man but you are wrong. jeffrey toobin is here. >> i'm not sure about either of those things but, okay, go ahead. >> i will say this, what rush limbaugh is saying is something that is being echoed across this country. people are panicking, an e
